Book Character Day

As we approach the end of National Reading Month, scholars may dress as their favorite book character on Friday, March 23. For Book Character Day, scholars should be prepared to share the name of the book their character is from and what they liked about the book and the character. In celebration, be sure to say "HELLO, GOOD MORNING" to The Cat in the Hat in the morning car pool line!! "You find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax. All you need is a book." - Dr. Seuss, The Cat in the Hat
